Open Letter to Bill Richardson
Governor Bill Richardson,
Sir you need to talk about the future and not your great past. No question about it, you have done some great stuff, for working in Darfur and North Korea and your labor policies in your homestate. But this week on Meet the Press, Tim Russert kicked you to the curb on almost everything you have ever said. I personally was very excited about your campaign but now I feel like you may have a very similar case of Tommy Thompson disease; it is time to remove your foot from your mouth.
You did have a few brilliant moments, yet they were few and very far between. You did say “something that isn’t very popular, I am going to ask people to sacrifice,” when discussing the need for new ways to fight climate change. But sir it was mired platitudes and banalities that I almost missed this declaration of energy independence (that would have been a better line by the way).
Stop talking in paragraphs.
Gun control issues need to be black and white Bill. You support gun rights but also want people to be careful and lawful. Your party doesn’t like guns, but the electorate does. Anyone watching the Sunday morning shows understands that. Just answer the question governor.
But worst of all you said you were always a Red Sox fan but in your book you said you are a Yankee fan! Tim Russert said it, you may be able to bring people together but never will you be able to get Red Sox fans and Yankee fans together. You my friend just lost my support!
